Winter Storm Headquarters

Winter 2019-20 continued a trend of warmer and wetter weather. While winter storm season is way off in the future, preparation is a year-round activity.

Winter storms cause more than $1 billion in insured losses each year, but homeowners can reduce their risk of damage by taking a few simple actions to prepare before the snow, ice, and cold weather arrive.

The first step in preparedness is conducting an insurance check-up and making a home inventory. As the year progresses, this is the time to complete home maintenance projects such as caulking, insulating pipes, and trimming trees and limbs that could pose a risk during heavy snow.

APCIA’s Catastrophic Risks Headquarters offers vital information on natural disaster preparedness year round. Follow us on Twitter @TeamAPCIA for more tips and information.
